My parents returned on the 28th and stayed through Halloween. I took Jonathan and Thomas on their first trip to South-Doyle on the 30th. And then it was Halloween!
Michelle helped me make costumes for the kids for Halloween! They turned out great! Unfortunately, the kids did not enjoy wearing them. I think they were too hot, or they were just tired and cranky. Who knows?

Granny Pam came for a visit on Nov.3 and spent the whole day with us! Michelle's mom also stopped by that night to see the babies. I have a very hazy memory of her coming to see me in the hospital when they were born, but she had never seen the babies.
Nov.8 we had RSV shots again. This was an exciting visit because the doctor told us that Thomas didn't need to have Xopenex anymore! He would still get Pulmicort twice a day, but with only one medicine, the treatments were significantly shorter!
On Nov.18 we had a huge shindig at the house. What started as a small get-together with a couple of friends turned into a pre-Thanksgiving bonanza. That Sat. we were joined by Uncle Clay and Aunt Carey; Granny Pam, Great-granny Kat, and Great-aunt Jayne: Michelle, Judah, David and Abby; Bryon and Darlene; Jason and Blake; and Josh, Cris, ans Carter! It was a very full house! But we had a blast and managed to sneak in a surprise baby shower for Clay and Carey!

On Nov.20 the babies turned 5 months old! We used these pictures for our Christmas cards. (My apologies to any who didn't get one. You can see it in the top right-hand corner of the blog.) Here are a few we didn't use:
